Dean – Owner/Tour Guide

Favorite Wine: Pinot Noir

After 28 years service in the Royal New Zealand Navy a move to Marlborough and the relaxing lifestyle was well deserved.  Dean and Jess recently took over Marlborough Wine Tours to enjoy the best of what the Marlborough lifestyle has to offer.  Dean is heavily involved in the local rugby community and he’s not a wine snob – any wine will do to enjoy with great company, food and entertainment.




Kevin – Tour Guide

Favorite Wine: Pinot Gris

He has lived in Marlborough since 2010 and has been a tour guide with MWT for the last 6 years. His previous career choice, including a time in the tourist industry in the North Island, have given him the experience to enjoy the interaction with a wide variety of people from both NZ and overseas. He has also researched and learned much about the history and characteristics of Marlborough and the wine region and enjoys passing this knowledge on to his passengers
